The World map by the National Geographic Society is a current political map that shows our world in traditional blue colours. The maps' astounding detail and quality make this map an excellent reference tool for either the home, office or classroom.
Unlike other political maps, the country borders are shown by the use of a heavy coloured die line and the interior of the country is shown in white, making it easier to read the place names and information. Mountain ranges are shown in great detail through the use of shaded relief and the map also focuses on showing ocean depths and currents in greater detail than on any other World map.
The sheer amount of information on this map is impressive, there are smaller maps in the bottom corners showing population density, vegetation and land uses.
This map can come laminated which makes it very durable, you can also use our Mark-It-Dots to show where you have been.
The map uses the Winkel tripel projection to reduce distortion of land masses as they near the poles.
